Huawei modular data center solution promises 30% cut in operating costs

Huawei says its modular data center solution centrally monitors and manages equipment rooms and IT infrastructure and reduces operating costs by 30 percent.

Announced today at Gartner Symposium in Goa, India, the new convergent solution helps small and medium businesses (SMBs) to launch services by pre-integrating devices into a cabinet.

Huawei MicroDC solution also assists branches of large-sized groups to implement unified IT system planning and management.

Recently, Gartner said the Government IT spending in India will reach $6.4 billion in 2013, a 7 percent increase over 2012. This forecast includes spending by government on internal IT (including personnel), hardware, software, external IT services and telecom.

The MicroDC solution is an integrated micro data center that incorporates power supply/distribution devices, cabinets, heat dissipation modules, network devices, servers, security devices, cloud operating systems, and integrated management software.

Suresh Reddy, VP Enterprise Business, Huawei, said that MicroDC solution pre-installs temperature, humidity, and smoke sensors, cameras, and scalable arms to suit various application scenarios.

In addition, this solution also integrates the Huawei-developed Shared Service Management Center (SSMC), which centrally reports alarms and other data to allow the group headquarters to perform unified management and remote O&M.

Huawei claims that the MicroDC solution allows for standardization in IT equipment across branches of organizations, making access and management a simplified task. This solution can be programmed to operate properly even when left unattended; with a centralized management, thereby reducing operating costs by 30 percent.

The solution comes pre-installed through the engine room with IT facilities and a local deployment wizard. This makes deployment unbelievably rapid, allowing it to power on in a single day, and bringing a centralized system online very quickly.
